Very niiiiice!!

I was considering swapping my chrome for black on my red Super, but i think i prefer the chrome (and the fact it's metal vs plastic for the black trim sure helped to sway me).

I've always hated removing perfectly good parts merely for style, but the new Red GTS SuperSport is accessorized in Black - so I can feel the lure. To me, Black and Chrome scream "Biker". Am thinking about getting the Front Rack.

(there isn't a red supersport, it's orange )

but i know which you're talking about.


I will say, I sorted the Sip Pordoi mirror making my throttle stick; the bar end weight has a rubber o-ring that I just took off allowing the mirror to sit that fraction of an inch further outboard and no more sticky throttle.

I almost bought the ORANGE SuperSport, so I also should know better... Facepalm emoticon

Did you keep the stock mirrors or go with hole plugs? Are they for looks or is there a practical reason for them? I vaguely recall reading that they're smaller and show less of the road to the rider. If the kit's that good, throw up a picture.

I still have the stock mirrors boxed up in bubble wrap. I grabbed some plastic plugs for the holes but they haven't arrived yet (coming today actually).

I got them for looks, and visibility is generally the same to me.

I may just swap back and forth as the mood takes me, who knows

I am in the process of de-chroming and embracing the inner wasp. A matte or satin black finish contrasts and looks so much better on a yellow body.

Post a picture, I'm sure it'll look sharp.

I will once I have more done. I am also reworking my artwork and looking at a couple of options. I will post some pics when I am closer to what I want for the mock up/proof.
